Abstract

Under the influence of the COVID-19, online learning has become a way for universities around the world to maintain teaching activities. Based on this background, this study selects a class of students from a university in Macao as the survey object. The students come from Macao and Chinese mainland. Through in-depth interviews, this study finds the reactions of students from different regions and influenced by different cultures in online learning. The results of the study show that students in the two places are concerned about the advantages, disadvantages, teaching adjustments, and external conditions of online learning. However, it is worth noting that the actual perception of online learning by students is quite different, and the students in Macao show "emotional stimulation", Chinese Mainland students show "rational cognition". For this reason, we propose that the online classroom should be adjusted in accordance with cultural differences in order to achieve better online learning and teaching effects.
